All Hail Bloomberg’s “Taxi of Tomorrow”

Michael Bloomberg is not a fan of New York’s yellow cabs. He famously promised to “f-ing destroy” the industry and was taken to court by the Greater New York Taxi Association over his widely panned “Taxi of Tomorrow” — a plan to replace the city’s 13,000 yellow cabs with a fleet of hybrid vehicles. “Bloomberg thinks that everyone should just follow his decisions,” said taxi-fleet owner Gene Freidman. 

Bloomberg's Drive To Destroy Yellow Cabs



Bloomberg introduces his “Taxi of Tomorrow” — an adapted version of the Nissan NV 200 small van. Medallion taxi cab owners respond by filing a lawsuit.



A judge ruled that the mayor’s plan to replace the city’s taxi fleet with the Taxi of Tomorrow violated a city code requiring a hybrid-cab option for garage owners.



The Court of Appeals said NYC’s Taxi and Limousine Commission did not overstep its authority by designating a single vehicle type for taxi service.
